Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Here If You Need Us

Level III NICU at Huntington Hospital

Not all NICUs are created equal, and it’s important to know the difference when you are choosing where to have your baby. Huntington Hospital offers beyond advanced care in our level III NICU for babies born prematurely or with medical problems. In fact, our NICU provides the highest level of neonatal intensive care available in the San Gabriel Valley.

We have in-house neonatologists available 24 hours a day with support teams that include neonatology surgeons, physicians and nurses; specially trained respiratory therapists; pediatric pharmacists; occupational therapists; dietitians and transport teams.

For more information about the NICU, or to arrange for a transport, please call (626) 397-8524.

COVID-19 Visitation Guidelines:

To provide comfort and support to your baby during their stay in the NICU, we have specific guidelines for visitation:

  • One parent may visit at a time.
  • Parents may switch out at any time throughout baby’s stay.
  • There is no time limit on visitation for parents.

Any visitor who exhibits signs and symptoms of illness will not be granted entrance.

No food from the outside is permitted out of an abundance of caution. 

Children under the age of 15 may not visit the hospital because of infection prevention concerns. 

We reserve the right to ask permitted visitors to leave at any time. Disruptive individuals will be asked to leave campus immediately.  

We may close to visitors at any time, without prior notice, based on community infection rates or hospital guidelines.

NICU Reunion Postponed

Hello to all our NICU families and graduates!

Due to ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, not to mention a still very active RSV/flu season, we are postponing our bi-annual NICU Reunion. While we are anxious to see you all, I think we can all agree that the health and safety of our babies comes first. Please pass the word along to our other NICU grads to be sure they are aware. Stay tuned for updates to come as soon as we have the new party date. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon!!!  💕💕

Love, Your Huntington NICU family

We are the only hospital in the San Gabriel Valley to offer many of the advanced neonatal care techniques that are responsible for saving dozens of young lives every year. Our NICU offers state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical services.

A Successful March for Babies

Huntington Hospital was a proud sponsor of the March of Dimes March for Babies, which was held on Saturday April 27, 2019.

Thanks to the walkers who came out to support the Huntington Hospital NICU team and the March of Dimes organization.

Fetal Surgery

Huntington Hospital Maternal and Children’s Services, in partnership with USC Institue for Maternal-Fetal Health (IMFH) offers a Fetal Surgery Program to identify and treat medical problems in children while they are still in the womb.

Therapeutic Induced Hypothermia (Total Body Cooling)

Cooling is a treatment that may prevent or minimize long-term consequences of brain injury in newborns.

Nitric Oxide Treatment

Nitric oxide treatment is a non-invasive method of treating respiratory and cardiopulmonary disorders in infants.

ECMO Treatment

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a life-saving surgical treatment for pulmonary hypertension or respiratory failure in infants. ECMO pumps blood out of the body and through an artificial lung to receive oxygen, remove carbon dioxide and support the work of the lungs.

Small Baby Unit

Our small baby unit provides specialized care for our tiniest patients under 32 weeks and 1500 grams.

Nutrition & Feeding Program

We want our patients to have the best care so we provide the option of milk from a licensed donor milk bank for qualified candidates. For babies born under 32 weeks gestation, less than 1500 grams, or those who have suffered a bowel injury, donor milk may be given (with parental conset) until the mother’s own milk supply is the right amount to feed her baby until he/she reaches 32 weeks gestation. Studies have shown that breast milk offers many benefits such as improved digestion, help with long-term development, and has active growth and changing hormones.

High Risk Infant Clinic

For NICU graduates who require follow-up care after discharge, a team of skilled practitioners from our high-risk infant follow-up clinic are on-hand to assist families with additional services.

For more information about high-risk infant clinic, please call (626) 397-8675.
